TUESDAY'S HUM (5-30-06)

MANY THANKS TO ALL HUM READERS (of which there are many).YOUR PATIENCE WAS APPRECIATED AS OUR AWARD WINNING STAFF ENJOYED A LONG WEEKEND. WE'RE BACK!

EVERYONE LOVES A PARADE

Everyone loves a parade - especially Bernie Sanders, Martha Rainville, John Tracy and Mark Shepard. Those four were seen marching in the Essex Junction Memorial Parade, which took place on Saturday, May 27. The Essex parade is one of the biggest in the state, and the HUM was curious to see which politicos would turn out. We didn't see any evidence of Tarrant or Welch or Kurt Wright, but maybe we were in the senior center buying cookies when they passed by. Word of advice to politicians, aspiring and otherwise - DO the Essex parade every year. There's a huge crowd and it's an easy crowd; not a lot of heckling or trouble of any kind. Bernie looked committed, Martha look elegant, Tracy looked presidential and The Good Shepard looked affable, as usual. It was an easy score.

DOLLARS FOR BOWLING
Another Chitt County bowling alley biting the dust, er, hardwood. Green Mountain Lanes in Essex, a trusty old friend, has a going out of biz sign in the parking lot. "Everything Must Go," says the sign, which means they're selling off a lot of cool stuff. Imagine the Green Mountain Lanes sign in your basement bar.
Are any new bowling lanes opening in Vermont or will they all gradually be closing? Hope not.

FIVE CORNERS UPDATE
Banner day on Sunday. The Essex Junction Five Corners Light took so long to change, I was able to put the car in park, hitchhike to battery Park, run a sub-four hour marathon, have a beer at Waterfront Park and hitchhike back before the damned light turned green! Hurray for me.

Award winning? Staff? Many Readers?

Tell you what "Hum-Job" I think you're lying about all three.

Who is on your "staff?" What awards have "they" won? And let's see those impressive stats! Why keep them hidden?

Yeah, who the heck are you? Anonymous demands to know!

Well, given that "anonymous" just started cropping up after your "Memorial Weekend Hum," maybe not so anonymous!

Keep up the good work, Hum!

The blog has a greater burden of proof then its commenter, doesn't it? Anonymous blog, anonymous commenters. Unverifiable claims. What’s the point of any of it? Is this simply self-aggrandizement for its own sake, Jeff Van Buren?

I'll bet the Hum sees itself as a journalistic special force, anonymously doing the breaststroke through the turbid waters of the Vermont political basin, beholden to no one.

You ought to know, djc. These comments are a farce. VT Hum likes to talk to himself.

"These comments are a farce."

The only thing that's a farce is when not-really-anonymous owners of failed local blogs try to ruin a well-written one by spamming it with idiocy!

Keep up the good work, Hum!

What are you talking about anonymous? BTW- I am NOT Vermont Hum, whoever is accusing me.
